mTw managed to put themselves back on the top position of GosuLeague's division one, as the fifth out of seven playdays opened today. The well-playing European mix managed to score fully in both their matches and lead our chart ahead of Mousesports for the moment.
|Game #1: Darer vs mTw|
Going into the first game as Dire, mTw were the winners of the after ten minutes. Following a successful trap onto Mag's level one spirit bear at a dead-end spot on the map, the Ukrainian carry had to spend the first 70 seconds without his elemental companion. This added to the already dominant mTw top lane and let Gyrocopter become the strongest hero so far.
The Radiant's Windrunner and Chaos Knight did their job well however and carried their team into the mid game, where Lone Druid managed to pick up a Radiance. This helped Darer's presence in team fights significantly who at one point even managed to grab a lead in kills and attempted to push up the opponents base.
A critical fight around the 45th minute, in which Darer seemed to experience technical difficulties and paused during the threshold of action, resulted in their forces being completely torn apart. Led by impatience and the will to land an abrupt counter-strike, the Ukrainians engaged in a second fight shortly later, that ended similarly horrific. Despite having not taken a single step into the opposing base so far, mTw went on to destroy four barracks and the ancient tree during one Radiant downtime.
|Game #2: mTw vs Darer|
Switching sides, mTw got off to a 5:0 lead after ten minutes. Especially Invoker and Venomancer had to suffer through aggressive tower-diving by Chen and Crystal Maiden. SyndereN's Night Stalker on the other and had to play conservative against Darer's duo on mid lane, however one early death did not affect his performance once the first night surfaced.
The lead quickly extended to a 17:5 after 20 minutes, respectively 23:7 when Darer resigned. Laning their Tidehunter against Sockshka's Windrunner proved to be a semi-effective choice, as both him and syndereN shaped up to become the key heroes, that initiated mTw's attacks.

This and the victory against EYES let mTw pull ahead in the chart by one point. Having gotten pushed down to the second place, Mousesports will have to take two games off Moscow5 this saturday to hop back on the thrown.
